A Long Awaited Baby Girl | Wichita Birth Photographer

My friend C lost a baby girl last year at about 20 weeks. It was absolutely devastating. So when I learned that she was expecting again I offered to bless them with birth photography. I know they aren't well off and she's one seriously amazing Mama. I wanted to give her something few other people in Wichita can give; professional birth photography. And I'm so, so excited to say that Baby E came into the world pink and screaming and healthy this evening. C was a rock star and endured pitocin without any pain medication. I've given birth 4 times at home and I think she's amazing. I pretty much can't do pitocin without drugs (uh, tried and failed TWICE). I bow to you C, no matter how you felt you were out of control. I promise, you were NOT. E is a darling baby girl and it was an HONOR to be there for her arrival. Thank you so much for the opportunity to share it with you.
